As a mother I'm always pondering.
Things like how in the world I can buy new socks for my girls and by the end of the week not one of them will have a matching pair emerge with it from the wash. I wonder how in the world every kitchen cabinet handle can be sticky even after I just wipe them down. I mean, we really do wash our hands around here. I ponder how sweet my children are as they sleep even if they do have sticky hands.
Today I'm pondering how lucky I am to have these ladies in my life:Along with this guy:
(I'm so mad I only got action shots of my Dad.)
And I'm pondering how lucky I am that I got to spend this last weekend with them.
We presented all together at a Power of Moms retreat at my parent's house in Park City and had so much fun being together and meeting over 100 powerful mothers who attended.
I am thinking about all the thoughts and inspiration I have running through my head from what I learned and how to capture them in writing so I can always remember them. I'm pondering how very powerful Motherhood can be if we are deliberate about how we go about it. And I'm pondering about how to tackle the hundreds of pictures I took too.
Until I get to that though, I'm pondering how to make this Easter Week really meaningful.
So, I'm going over the great ideas in the comments for this post last year. There are some gems in there and I'm trying to figure out what new things to incorporate into our family Easter traditions to make my children understand more deeply the importance of this week.
Add any extra ideas you have...I'd love to hear them!
